Everyone was jumping on the Los Angeles Rams boat because they came out the gate swinging, but I have a question for you. Were they ever that great? I think many were looking at the wins and not teams they won against and by how many.
Before the Bears game last week I was at work with my co-worker and we were looking at the schedule of the Rams to see just how overrated they have been. Let’s look at their schedule and put it all in perspective.
The Rams played the Raiders week one who have 3 wins up until this point. Week 2 they beat the Cardinals who also have three wins after 15 weeks. The Rams beat a solid Chargers team by 12 points, then came back and beat an overrated Vikings team by a touchdown.
The Rams then barely squeezed by the Seahawks and then the Broncos by less than three points. The Rams then blew out the 49ers who have 4 wins after 15 weeks.
The Rams then were beat by the Saints, and barely hung on to beat the Seahawks again winning by 5 points. They pulled off the game of the year against the Chiefs who have a horrible defense. They then came back to beat the Lions who have 5 wins to lose the last two weeks in a row to the Bears and Eagles. The Rams have not blown out any good team. They are winning games but by 7 points or less unless the team has 5 wins or less. This team is not as good as people are giving them credit for.
Everyone thinks the Super Bowl will come out the NFC but I do not believe the Rams will be the team to do it. I would pick the Bears over the Rams right now. I still think the AFC holds the Super Bowl winner.
